doesn't those things fog up or get Sweat all over it while playing ?? I never seen Chung acutally clean that thing. I am thinking if you get sweat falling off your head and get it all over the glasses, won't it be tough to see thru ?
Idk ask Tipsarevic and Istomin

He seems to take the glasses off every few points to towel his face off. With that frequency, I doubt he has issues with droplets on his lenses. I play in my everyday glasses and rarely have issues. Have some clear lenses on the way for my sports frame and will be using them for playing. Can't wait.

Don't pros prefer contacts over frames?

In any case he needs to get cooler looking frames. Weird white color. Looks ugly and nerdy.

Even red would be better than white.

I noticed the same thing @krisdrum mentioned. He seems to have a routine around very regularly taking the glasses off, wiping the area around his eyes, and also wiping the glasses too.

Two of his biggest sponsors are Oakley and Samsung so they may develop special glasses that help maximise his game in the future.

Does anyone know if he ever wears the tinted prescription sunglass version? I've always thought if I could get used to wearing sunglasses it would be a huge advantage on the court protecting your eyes and also minimising glare.

I'd imagine at this point Oakley, being part of the largest optics company in the world (Luxottica, who also own Ray Ban, Lens Crafter, and other famous names) would have RX glasses pretty dialed in within the technology limits we currently have. Not sure how helpful Samsung would be to partnering to that pursuit. But who knows.

I would guess if he was going to wear sunglasses, we would have seen them already considering the conditions down in Oz. Those who wear frames is already a small percentage of players. It seems those who go for a tinted lens for certain conditions is an even smaller subset. I've only seen Tipsarevic in them. I've tried a few times to play with my RX sunglasses and I haven't found much success. Personally I find the lowered level of light being transmitted to my eye to really impact how well I see and react to the ball. For me, a brimmed cap shades the eyes enough to reduce glare and the need to squint in bright light, but does not significantly alter the amount of light I'm taking in from the court itself.

Isn't anyone who plays in glasses which have individually tailored prescription lenses/tint level basically sporting 'custom' lenses? Hey, I've just typed this post wearing 'custom' reading glasses - cool!!:)

Maybe that mindset will make it cooler to wear glasses as a kid. They aren't prescription, they're CUSTOM!

I got the glasses his make and model for a trail and taking to the supplier they agreed his shape his is custom

It's a smaller lense and cuts in in terms of shape
 
Do these sports glasses work? The problem with regular glasses is too limited field of view and blind spots. Especially sucks for overheads. Im guessing these cover your eyes more so have wider viewing angles. Anyone try these or sports glasses in general?

I used to play with an oakley radar for 2 years. Now it is totally scratched up. Just bought the Flak Beta. Will try it in Tennis and see how it holds up.

I took my new clear lenses for a test drive last night in some doubles. Could be placebo effect, but I played great. 6-1, 6-3 and was on the winning team for both sets (we switched it up after the first set). Field of vision is significantly larger than my everyday glasses, so I have clear vision except for the very edge of my periphery. And my sports frames are "frame less", so nothing dark to be a distraction. I'm quite happy, been playing in my street glasses all my life,and I think these are a nice upgrade.

Good question, actually. I wonder what rules will be set regarding this as technology advances.
Even at the current level many glasses offer considerable advantages.

Anyone, who was at a shooting range or has been doing any type of outdoor activities, for that matter, would know about that.

The question is, does he need to go through checks for some sort of compliance to established limits, and what those are?

I wondered about the same thing with Tipsarevic or any player, who is wearing sunglasses on court.

:cool:

If you watch closely you see him using towels and his shirt between points. I have actually the same problem with sweat on my glasses. Are there any glasses with windscreen wipers? That would be interesting.

I wonder if it's not being addressed in tennis because the disadvantage of having to clean your glasses between points is seen as off-putting enough to counterbalance it.
I could see how that would throw off your rhythm.

I use prescription glasses on court a very curved frame so I have almost perfect peripheric vision, the problem with these is the fogging, the sweat is easily fixed with a head band but the fogging used to give trouble, in night games it was torture while serving and the lights hit the fog, I searched for solutions and bought many antifog products that didn't work, eventually I stumbled across the perfect fix, every night before a game or practice I put a drop of liquid dishwasher soap on each side of the glasses and let it dry there, then I just wipe it and the fog is gone.
